Recalls for 2006 Aston Martin DB9 Volante
2006 ASTON MARTIN DB9
NHTSA Campaign ID: 05V513000
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Manufacturer: ASTON MARTIN
Manufacture Dates: 08/01/2005 - 09/30/2005
Potential Units Affected: 67
Defect Description:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, WHEN A LOAD IS APPLIED ON THE PARKING INTERLOCK SYSTEM, THE LOCKING CONE, WHICH IS PART OF THE PARKING PAWL SYSTEM, MAY CREATE AN INDENTATION ON AN UNHARDENED GUIDE PLATE AT THE CONE CONTACT AREA. AN INDENTATION MAY ALSO RESULT IN A RAISED EDGE TOWARDS THE LOCKING CONE GUIDE CHANNEL WHICH MAY HINDER THE LOCKING CONE FROM REACHING ITS END POSITION.
Consequence:
THE PARK MAY NOT ENGAGE WHEN THE "P" BUTTON IN THE VEHICLE IS PRESSED TO SELECT PARK AND ALL INDICATORS SHOW THE PARK POSITION IS ACHIEVED. THIS COULD RESULT IN A VEHICLE ROLL-AWAY CONDITION, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE PARKING PAWL GLIDE PLATE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON DECEMBER 23, 2005. OWNERS MAY CONTACT ASTON MARTIN AT 201-818-8328.
2006 ASTON MARTIN DB9
NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V753000
Component: SEATS:FRONT ASSEMBLY:SEAT HEATER/COOLER
Manufacturer: Aston Martin Lagonda of North America
Manufacture Dates: 07/03/2006 - 11/05/2014
Potential Units Affected: 7256
Defect Description:
Aston Martin Lagonda of North America (Aston Martin) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 DB9, V12 Vantage, V8 Vantage, DBS, and Virage vehicles manufactured July 3, 2006, to November 5, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic control module for the driver and front passenger seat heaters may fail, preventing the seat heaters from being able to be turned off.
Consequence:
If the electronic control module fails, the seat heater could get hot enough that areas of the seat may overheat and smolder, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Action to take:
Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional module to the circuit that can interrupt the power to the seat heaters in case the electronic control module for the seat heaters fails, free of charge. The recall began in January 2015. Owners may contact Aston Martin Customer Service by calling 1-888-923-9988. Aston Martin's number for this recall is RA-01-0019.

Defect Description:
